The Ultimate Experience

Here’s What We’ve Been Up To

Want to get a glimpse of the Abu Dhabi and Dubai trip? Below you will find a variety of photos from our trip. 


Traveling to the UAE was a life changing experience. I was able to do and see things that I would have never imagined myself to experience. I read a quote during the trip that said, “you can shake the sand from your shoes, but it will never leave your soul”. This quote is the definition of this trip for me, I will never forget how this experience has impacted as a person.

Transformational Experiences

Expanding The Mind Through Transformational Experiences 

We believe every young person should be afforded the opportunity to expand their mind through global experiences. International travel broadens ones perspective and provides an expanded experience based that is valuable for effective leadership, critical thinking and problem solving. As the world becomes smaller, successful leadership will require a global mindset.

The World Is Our Classroom!

YBLA Takes Dubai 

The world is getting smaller and we believe it makes an excellent classroom. We want our young leaders to benefit from the valuable lessons that can be learned on an international level. To that end, YBLA is proud to announce our Global Leadership Program.

The Global Leadership Program is designed to impact the lives of young leaders by expanding their Cultural Intelligence (CQ). We want to enhance their understanding of leadership styles, cultural differences and global business practices through cross-cultural, international learning opportunities. 

From December 26, 2017 to January 4, 2018, twelve YBLA students and ten adults traveled to Abu Dhabi and Dubai for the inaugural Global Leadership Program trip. During their time abroad, the participants learned first-hand just how interconnected different countries and cultures are with the United States.
